Sacred Craft Santa Cruz

6 04 2011

“More than anything, Sacred Craft is a celebration of the surfboard – the philosophical icon of enduring youth. No other object stirs as much passion, as much stoke, and as much power”. The spring show held in Santa Cruz did not disappoint. Surfers packed the Rittenhouse Building in downtown Santa Cruz on a rainy weekend and feasted on freshly shaped surfboards, contemporary and retro models,  live shaping demos, surf art, and a chance to rub elbows with friends and legends. Local shaper Doug Haut was featured in the tribute to the masters shape-off competition. Local Ward Coffey took top honors over Wayne Rich, Steve Coletta, Mark Angell and Bob Pearson replicating Doug’s classic “bump” model.
